|Pickering Punk 1 - Pickering Punk|
Ivan Judd of Swindled produced this punk zine. He was from Pickering and this issue came out in March 1978. Ivan was explaining to me that he bought a Gestetner machine and ran these off at home. The Gestetner machine was the same kind of machines that schools used to run off habdouts in class back in the day. The paper is similar to thermal paper used for fax machines. This issue was influenced by the Pig Paper and has some interesting pieces about Dole Q, the History of Punk, a discography, so...

CIUT's transmitter stopped working last week. We have been operating off a temporary transmitter. The funding drive is all about raising twice as much money so that we can buy a new transmitter and have it installed. The theme for the campaign continues with "Sound of the City" but I reinterpreted it to be "Sound in our city" so that we could focus on some of the upcoming shows coming to town one of which is the Stage Bottles next Saturday...

This show was inspired by a feature in a weekly entertainment magazine known as Now. This past week they did a feature on the Best 50 albums by Torontonians. They had a punk singles list which made very little sense given the enormity of the period and the nubre of bands that have put out great things so we did our own list based on Generations of punk. We started off with the punk scene and then we did the hardcore scene...
